Heading west on the A55, ignore the first sign for Conwy. Go through the tunnel and take the next exit which is signposted to the marina. Turn right towards the marina. At the first mini roundabout, turn left and follow to the end which is Beacons slip. The parking area is yards from the slip. There will be a couple of scousers in motorhomes for overnight security.

Conwy quay is about 1/2 mile upriver from the slip on the starboard side. Don't get out of the boat and into the water here. The bottom is soft deep mud.

No marina petrol in Douglas so I need to know who needs what from the garage unless we can arrange a bowser.

Further details as we get them.

Is this meant to be a couple of scouser INSTEAD of security?

Ian,
we'll organise that nearer the time when you know whether you can make it or not. At the moment I would suspect a boat trip is the least of your worries even if it is something to look forward to when you are better.
Hopefully you be up to it and be able to come, its always nice to put faces to names.

Glad to hear you've made it through nearly the worst part - the really bad part is two weeks of hospital food to 'look forward too'.

Hope you have a speedy recovery

You will be there even if we have to come and fetch you.

One who shall remain nameless has dropped out because his missus is due to give birth on the 6th. We have the technology to deal with that en route but he has still wussed out.

Brain ops and pregnancy do not count as valid excuses.

Sudden death will be the only excuse accepted and only then on production of a valid post mortem cert. Even so, there's no reason why the corpse cannot be bungee strapped to a jockey seat.

Here you are folks. A little schematic that shows were the mooring pontoons are in Douglas Harbour.
You MUST radio in.
Beware. All ferries spin round inside the harbour taking up most of the space every time they dock. Harbour Master usually forbids entry/exit and any movement by other vessels when a ferry is docking. Hence your need to radio in (Chan. 12).
